Entry Description

People are like particles. They are the important achievement of the universe. They are like light whose photons can be interpreted like a particle and a wave. People can be a wave when we are talking about civilizations and can be a particle, unique individual. They enlighten and fill the world. Without them everything will be empty. My father had restored this place and I took it's photographs. This wasn't done simultaneously. Covered by primary stripes of light part of the wall of the building is round.
